‘Unfortunately, there’s a corpse in this trunk.’
Sara Fellini’s dark new comedy THE WAKE OF DORCAS KELLY brings the audience front and center as a grotesquely intimate circle of mourners gather within The Maiden Tower brothel to hold a wake for Dorcas Kelly, the beloved former madame executed for her crimes against humanity, while a riot rages without on the streets of Dublin, 1762. But as the night roars on and Dorcas’ many well-kept secrets are revealed, thoughts of adoration for their departed benefactress turn to questions about their own love, lust, fear, and anger.
Tickets $42, available to vaccinated guests.
